Trinity Buoy Wharf Wedding Photography, London
A return trip to The Chainstore for a Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding, this time for the whole day. Camila got ready at home with her sister and friend who were on bridesmaid duty, with another friend doing hair and everyone doing their own make-up. There was some last minute speech-writing by bride and bridesmaid, and some very organised sticking of speeches to cards. A much safer option than trying to read off a phone! Then we all headed across the river to the venue.
Awaiting us at Trinity Buoy Wharf was a gaggle of guests, and a small forest of what looked like silver birch trees. With everyone seated there was a humanist ceremony prepared and conducted by the fabulous Zena Birch. I can’t impress on you enough how much a bespoke ceremony adds to the enjoyment of everyone present, including the photographer! Legal recognition for humanist ceremonies NOW!! Despite moody skies the weather stayed dry for everyone to enjoy the usual refreshments with the great views of Docklands just outside.

Speeches took place between courses, one of which required crowd-participation in the act of beef carving. A course, not a speech. We heard from both the chief bridesmaid and the best man, as well as the father of the bride and the groom. Dessert was a ‘help yourself’ festival of pavlova, and there was a pop-up gin bar that was doing a roaring trade. Then the sun set over the O2 arena and the financial centre just along the river. There was time for a sneaky speech from Camila, a bouquet toss from the stage, then dancing with tunes provided by The MP3s. And of course lots of sparkles from that highlight of any Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding, the giant mirror ball!
